Lord Bernard Stewart

Lord Bernard Stewart (1623–September 26, 1645) was a Scottish aristocrat. He was the youngest son of Esmé Stewart, 3rd Duke of Lennox and his wife Katherine Clifton, 2nd Baroness Clifton, and the brother of James Stewart, 1st Duke of Richmond.

Lord Bernard was to be created Earl of Lichfield by King Charles I for his actions at the battles of Newbury and Naseby but died of injuries received leading a sortie against besieging Parliamentary forces in the Battle of Rowton Heath in September 1645, before the patent could be implemented. The title was instead created for his nephew, Charles Stewart (1639-1672), the son of Bernard's elder brother George Stewart, 9th Seigneur d'Aubigny, who had been killed at the Battle of Edgehill.
